Versatile Scales for Acute, Long-Term Care Providers

A versatile line of handrail and wheelchair scales for acute and long-term care providers is available from Tanita.
The portable units can be moved to wherever elderly patients or patients in wheelchairs reside. Designed for extra stability, the model 3101 handrail scale offers ergonomically designed handrails that can accommodate unstable patients.
The “Motion-Stop” weight sensing technology means that extremely unstable patients will receive consistent and accurate results. Other advanced features that are standard on the company’s scales are weight recall, auto-zero, manual and automatic tare feature, pound/kilo switch, adjustable time-out feature and field calibration mode. Weight readings can be uploaded to EMRs and PCs automatically when connected to the built-in serial port.
